Sunchoke Pickle Relish

Sunchoke relish is on every table in Georgia and South Carolina, says Linton Hopkins. "When I was a boy, I thought they were the funniest artichokes," he recalls; in fact, they are knotty tubers with a sweet, crunchy taste.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 pounds sunchokes, scrubbed and cut into 1/2-inch dice
  • 1 (about 1 1/4 pounds) Vidalia or other sweet onion, finely diced
  • 1 (large) red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup dry mustard powder
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 quart apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon celery seeds

Preparation

  1. In a bowl, combine the salt with 4 cups of water. Add the sunchokes; let stand for 1 hour.
  2. Drain the sunchokes and return them to the bowl. Add the onion and red pepper and toss. Transfer the vegetables to 2 heated, sterile, quart-size canning jars.
  3. In a small bowl, stir the dry mustard powder and flour with 1/2 cup of water to make a paste. In a large saucepan, combine all of the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Whisk in the mustard-flour paste until smooth. Simmer until thickened, 10 minutes. Pour the hot liquid over the sunchokes and tap to release any air bubbles.
  4. Cover the jars (not too tightly) and transfer them to a deep pot filled with very hot water. Boil the jars for 25 minutes. Carefully remove the jars from the water and let cool.
